I Must Have Some Kind of Dating Curse!

I'm a single guy who enjoys being single and going out on dates. But latey, I swear that I am cursed or something. It is almost comical. For example:


Nov 2008 - great date with a gal. We planned a hot 2nd date when she suddenly decides her kid just can't cope with mom dating again.


Jan 09 - a female friend from WY wanted to come spend the weekend with me. Plans were made all the way up to booking airline tickets when the lousy economy just devasted her too much financially.


Mar 09 - a girl I dated once in Houston wanted to come visit me. Then apparently she falls in love with a local man and planned a marriage soon after. NEver hear from her anymore.


May 09 - I meet a local lady who wants to show me allthe cool spots around town, but she decides to go back into nursing and gets a work schedule on weekends, my only time off.

July 09 - I met a local gal online who really wanted to meet me. We planned a date the next day, and her father suddenly had a ruptured gallbladder. Never heard back from her since.


And now the latest one. I have a 2nd date planned with a schoolteacher nearby this weekend with high probability of things getting steamy. I just had this feeling something would go wrong even though she tells me there is no way she is missing Saturday.

Then I found out over half of students have come down with swine flu! Now I'm a hypochrondriac so I'll be paranoid on the date especially since they warn against kissing. I'm thinking about calling it off, but maybe I should just say fuck it. We're probably all gonna get this damn bug eventually.

Sorry man, I don't know how else to tell you this but all of those excuses offered sound fake.

Damn women. If they knew what was good for them they'd all be barefoot and pregnant. Oh, and washing dishes.

I wouldn't mind getting the flu if there is a chance that I get laid.
First you have sex, then you have to take days off from work. A win-win situation.

I really can't stick around this thread but just wanted to say it's not because of anything you did or said, it's me. This just isn't a good time for me to be posting.

A lot of people don't like to say "I'm not into you" they like to make excuses and hope that you absorb the message through osmosis.

Re: I Must Have Some Kind of Dating Curse!

Look for a common thread among things you've said to each of them before the date was canceled. For instance, telling a woman you're really excited to see her because it's been six months since someone sucked your dick will turn most women away.

Re: I Must Have Some Kind of Dating Curse!

I'd say this is my unasked-for two cents, but by posting here I'm pretty sure you're asking for our thoughts.

Nov 2008 - great date with a gal. We planned a hot 2nd date when she suddenly decides her kid just can't cope with mom dating again.
She's just not that into you.

Jan 09 - a female friend from WY wanted to come spend the weekend with me. Plans were made all the way up to booking airline tickets when the lousy economy just devasted her too much financially.
If you speak with each other about trying to make it happen within the next six months, the economy reason is legitimate. If not, she's just not that into you.

Mar 09 - a girl I dated once in Houston wanted to come visit me. Then apparently she falls in love with a local man and planned a marriage soon after. NEver hear from her anymore.
She was never into you. Ever. Sorry. Plus, and I don't know where you live, if she's telling you she's thinking about traveling far to visit you and you dated once? I'd be scared.

May 09 - I meet a local lady who wants to show me allthe cool spots around town, but she decides to go back into nursing and gets a work schedule on weekends, my only time off.
I highly doubt she's avoiding you on purpose. I hope you're not making this assumption. Try to contact her. If you don't hear from her in a week, she's just not that into you.

July 09 - I met a local gal online who really wanted to meet me. We planned a date the next day, and her father suddenly had a ruptured gallbladder. Never heard back from her since.
Again, I highly doubt she's avoiding you on purpose. I hope you're not making this assumption. Try to contact her. If you don't hear from her in a week, she's just not that into you.

And now the latest one. I have a 2nd date planned with a schoolteacher nearby this weekend with high probability of things getting steamy. I just had this feeling something would go wrong even though she tells me there is no way she is missing Saturday.

Then I found out over half of students have come down with swine flu! Now I'm a hypochrondriac so I'll be paranoid on the date especially since they warn against kissing. I'm thinking about calling it off, but maybe I should just say fuck it. We're probably all gonna get this damn bug eventually.
You're just not that into her.

I'm pretty sure it's because you use the word "gal".

Re: I Must Have Some Kind of Dating Curse!

Hmm, antennaball may be on to something:

Gal
Female Friend
Girl
Local Lady
Local Gal
The Latest One

Who needs the word "woman"?

Re: I Must Have Some Kind of Dating Curse!

You want to get the swine flu now so that you'll have a natural immunity before it mutates into an H5N1 variant. One base-pair mutation (one bit flipped) is all it will take. So date her with the intent of swapping as many bodily fluids as possible.

(That sound is a hypochondriac's head exploding with indecision.)

Seriously, do you bathe? It could be your hygiene.

Re: I Must Have Some Kind of Dating Curse!

I love these dating threads. Please post again when:

The overly possessive and psychotic ex-boyfriend shows up.
The disgruntled and murderous ex-husband resurfaces.
She announces that she is is considering a sex change.
She ponders the possibility that she has been gay all these years and was suppressing her homosexual urges.
She has decided that bestiality is for her.

Until then, don't waste our time with a dating thread that has a run-of-the-mill relationship in it.

Hm. It seems the one factor in all your failed relationships is you.



Good luck with the plague lady.

Did you ever contact her, like, you know, to maybe check on how her dad was and ask her if she wanted to go out? or did you just wait for her to contact you?
